XO-3 interview compilation
Network World compiled this montage of clips and interviews with Nicholas about the XO-3 and our latest Marvell collaboration. If you didn’t pick it out of the original announcement, it’s worth a watch — and it’s a good short summary of where we are heading.
XO-3 update: OLPC and Marvell partner to design a line of tablets
This post is now in French on the OLPC France blog – thanks, Lionel!
I’m happy to announce that today we finalized a partnership with Marvell to design a line of education-focused tablet computers. Some of these will be OLPC machines targeted for the developing world, such as the XO-3. The line will be based both on Marvell’s reference design for its Moby tablet and on OLPC’s XO-3 designs (particularly for the low-power end of the line).Â (Hat-tip to Charbax for predicting this in March.)
Update: see also this video of Nicholas discussing our current tablet plans. (If you look closely, you can see that some of the highlights were from a talk in the new Media Lab building.)
The first tablets in the line will be based closely on the Moby, ”’not”’ the XO-3, and focused more on children in the developed world. They will be on display at CES 2011 in January, and available next year for under $100. The original XO-3 design is still planned for 2012.Â More details after the jump.
